BUT you'll get to play... if you're lucky enough to be invited to play. If not, there's always YouTube and Twitch for watching streamers who have said opportunity.

YouTube Clips tests Twitch-like video snippet sharing

YouTube Clips tests Twitch-like video snippet sharing

YouTube remains the world's biggest video-sharing site even with the likes of Twitch, TikTok, and Instagram eating away some parts of that pie. Despite the platform's goal of maximizing engagement, especially with money-making YouTubers, it has been criticized at times for being slow on innovating new features and implementing much-needed ones.

Week-long speedrunning marathon Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 kicked off yesterday, and though it looks a bit different from AGDQ 2020, it will still be hosting dozens of speedruns and raising money for charity.
